Franklin County and St. Lawrence County members of the Northern Zone of the New York State Retired Teachers Association gathered for a luncheon and business meeting recently at the Potsdam Golf and Country Club. In a very dynamic and enthusiastic presentation, guest speaker Debra Donatto, chief professional officer and program director of the Massena Boys and Girls Club, outlined the philosophy, innovative programming, history, local progress and achievements of her organization. The Boys and Girls Club offers unique educational, cultural, social and recreational opportunities in a supportive, well-structured setting for children. NYSRTA members made a donation of $230 to the Boys and Girls Club. Pictured above, association vice-president Alice Galvin, right, presents the money to Debra Donatto, left.
